June Mellon visits with Rabbi Mari Betcher before taping a segment for the Police Chaplain Project in Austin, Texas. Both June and Marie have been critical to establishing the Police Chaplain Project as a source of inspiration and education for our nation's police chaplains.
Over the years I have noticed that Chaplains speak soulfully from the heart in a manner that is measured, thoughtful. In short they are the embodiment of everything that is missing from modern discourse.
They invest language with a kind of grace that is immediately distinguishable from 90 percent of what we hear and see through the media.
Through the Police Chaplain Project we are creating content that will offer future generations a substantive alternative to the spoiled children of billionaires and want-to-be reality TV contestants that daily accumulate on the web.
Leaving a meaningful and dignified digital legacy is in our hands.
Please help us tell of the quiet acts of courage, kindness and heroism that are the foundation of chaplaincy.
